Spain vs. Costa Rica and World Cup news and highlights from Qatar

Spain’s thrashing of Costa Rica has ended 7-0.

It was an utterly dominating performance by La Furia Roja. Spain found the back of the net three times in the first half — with Dani Olmo, Jordi Alba, and Ferran Torres all getting goals.

The second half proved to be much of the same with Spain dominating possession and continuing its relentless attack. 

In the 54th minute, Torres got his second to make it 4-0 before being subbed off. 

Twenty minutes later, Gavi scored a 5th for Spain. With his goal, the 18-year-old Spanish sensation became his country’s youngest goalscorer at a World Cup.

But Spain was not done. In the 89th minute, Carlos Soler scored a sixth. Then, mere moments later, Alvaro Marata got Spain a seventh.

Spain will end the day atop Group E. The +7 goal differential they earned against Costa Rica places them one spot above Japan, who bested Germany earlier in the day, 2-1.
